Fridays are those kinds of days, footloose and fancy free, deserving of total timepass posts. If you have favorites of your own or ideas for this feature, please do post links or send me an e-mail and I will put them up.
For starters, here's one of my favorite comedians - the super smart, super funny Eddy Izzard. In this clip he seizes on the way we are taught French in school, how sometimes it seems so divorced from reality. Doesn't matter if you don't know a lick of French. The clip is still funny! Izzard is known for his stand-up acts, but he's also appeared in quite a few movies. I've been trying to dig up a GQ interview from way back when, but can't find it. Oh, well!
